Won't Charge

Had this for two weeks, but the battery died and now it won't charge. The battery light just flashes red - even after doing the reset recommended on the Bose website and then charging overnight. Great sound through ... While it worked.

  • from Kitchener, ON

Decent speakers

Thought to invest in Bose speakers after owning their noise-cancelling headphones for 3 years; giving these 4 stars because the sound quality is decent - nothing to write home about, but good enough. It being a lower-end price, that was expected. I don't regret buying it for casual listening. It synced perfectly with my iPhone SE the first time but I had some trouble syncing it the second time.

awesome speakers

bose speakers rocks.

This thing is great!

Great speaker, especially considering the size. Easy to pair and use. Plenty loud and decent bass.

Bose sound link - great portable speaker

I have had this for over two years and bought a second for my parents. The battery life has been great for me...still lasts the 8 hours per charge. It also charges really fast, so not sure what the issue is for the other reviewer...maybe they didn't do the full charge and full drain the first couple times they used it. The reception range is ok, I can take it out to the pool about 45 feet from the house and it works.

Not Bad

I had an older larger Bose sound dock and during a move decided to get something more compact and modern. I miss my old speaker...honesty the sound on this does not come close. Its good, but I would have spent a bit more and gotten maybe one level up had I known.

Problems after only 3 months!

Bought this sound link March in 2016 because it was on sale. Bought it because of the reputation Bose had. Pros: - Good sound quality (compared to other portable Bluetooth devices) - Very Portable - Durable Cons: - Battery claims to be 8hr. Lucky to get 3 at 3/4 Volume - Range claims to be 50ft or so. Cuts out when its windy or low battery (10ft) - Micro USB jack on back of the Sound link if loose, charging cord does not stay in, you have to jiggle and prop it "just right" to ensure it gets fully charged. - Charging from dead takes about 4 hours. The biggest disappointment about the Sound link is that it is a Bose, I was expecting better quality. Charging input is practically broken after only 3 months. Not using it much. My gf and I have Galaxy S6s' and the Bluetooth still cuts out when we are in the back yard not even 10' from the unit. Battery I was expecting to be not as advertised but assumed I could keep it plugged in, back to charging problem. I will NOT buy another Bose product anytime soon.

Great speaker overall

Needed a small portable Bluetooth speaker and did some research. I can honestly say you pay for what you get. Bose has by far been the best speakers i have own. This one has is also top of my list. Sound is clear, speaker is convenient to bring anywhere you go. GREAT product in my book !!

  • from Markham ON

BOSE very portable speaker

I needed a small portable speaker. My son in law choses this speaker. It was a fantastic choice. Sound very good and very clear. I use with my Ipod. I will certainly recommend to anyone who need a speaker that is very portable and clear sound. Worth every penny!

  • from London, ON


The sound is amazing for such a small speaker.It pairs awesomely with my iPhones and MacBookPro.I get 6-8 hrs out of a charge depending how loud I use it.I doubt Win7 is an issue if it doesn't pair well it's your hardware not software.

Bose Soundlink not compatible with Windows 7

This speaker is good in sound quality and everything but it is not compatible with Windwos 7 OS. No drivers are there for Windows 7. I purchased this to play with my laptop but now, no use except with my cellphone.

  • from Milton, ON

Impressed from the sound quality

that sound of this speaker is amazing and very reach, specially the base.

  • from Sarnia, ON

Awesome sounding

Bought this to use when i am using my 4 wheel scooter so i can listen to music. It has awesome sound and is so easy to use. Very impressed with the sound and loudness of the speaker. I use the blue tooth to connect to my phone for music and its very easy to set up and use.

  • from Timmins, ON

Sounds are impressive

Bought this for my kids tablet. Had it hooked up trying it out with the bluetooth and they started playing a game on it. The sound out that little speaker sound impressive in the other rooms in the house. Well worth the price over cheaper model and I think it is better than some of more expensive models.

  • from Barrie, ON

Amazing sound

I debated buying this for the price and size, however Bose did come through with quality and design. Real easy to set up, and amazing sound on car trips when radio signal is not strong in the North. I have purchased 2 so far, and 3 more for Christmas gifts. Ideally, a portable bag with room for cord would be ++++

  • from Toronto, ON

Very Impressed

Bought one for my in-laws recently, wow! The sound was much more than I thought it would be. For its size it delivers rich complex sound. The price is reasonable and its the perfect size. I plan on buying more for friends and family. I trust and respect Bose.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Unit

Picked this up online and am impressed. Great sound from a small speaker, battery life was great. After charging first time lasted 5 hours listening to music at decidedly loud levels, second charge tried to drain it listening to internet talk radio, gave up after 10 hours and put the loud music back on. Sound quality is better than you would expect from such a compact unit. Only downside I found is it doesn't come with a case. I would definately recommend for its price range..

  • from Prince George, BC

Good for the realistic buyer

This product sounds fantastic when you factor in the price and overall size of the device. Anyone buying a 12cm by 13cm amplified speaker should know that it is for casual listening and not for playing during a full out house party... so I would disregard any of the "not loud enough" comments if your intention is to purchase quality over bombast.

  • from Gibsons, B.C.

Highly recommend

I was looking for a portable speaker to take to the beach. I have a few bose products so I knew of its quality. Ordering from Best Buy was my first smart decision, my speaker arrived in 2 days! (and I don't live in an easily accessible location). Second smart decision was this speaker- its amazing! Small and attractive and belts out the sound. Battery life is excellent. Took mere seconds to link to devices where my music was stored. Big win here!

Amazing but ugly

I was debating between this and the UE Boom, I will say the Bose has the better sound but I decided on the UE Boom instead, the Bose colour was just plain ugly in my opinion, that's why I went with the UE Boom, if the Bose had a better look then I would of got the Bose

  • from Brampton, ON

Excellent product

Love this. We keep this in our kitchen and its paired with all of our iphones. Whoever walks in the room and wants to pair it for their music its set up to pair. Love this

  • from Grande prairie

Perfect for people with hearing aids

Quality is there however plugged into my laptop it distorts before it's somewhat loud in my travel trailer, linked to my phone the volume is a joke, might as well wear headphones

  • from Kingston, ON

defective unit

First unit purchased clearly had a defect, major audio distortion. Although purchased on-line from Best Buy, I returned unit to local Kingston store who immediately confirmed the defect and replaced unit. Now happy with the product and very pleased with Best Buy service

  • from Newmarket, ON


Great little speaker that delivers Sound Quality - 10/10 very crisp, clean and has the ability to immerse a room completely without being 'loud' Volume - 9/10 These wouldn't suffice to be in a dance hall or anything like that but are perfect for a home and in a 1200 sq ft condo can pretty much be heard all around Bass - 8/10 - Not that powerful or distinctive, I personally like the level of bass that it has but for some people if they want the ground to shake this speaker wouldn't be able to do that Price - 10 - Very unlikely these ever go on Sale, so you will almost always end up paying full price, however I think it's definitely worth it Battery life - 10/10 it says up to 8 hours but I believe if the volume is mid-range that can go up to 10 hours, plus you can play music while this is charging whereas with other makes you cannot Overall - 47/50 = 94% For the size of this speaker, the battery life, portability and sound this is a great chioce. I was a bit hesitant about buying since this was a lower end price from BOSE for a product and thought maybe they cut some corners but they didn't (if you are looking to use as a speakerphone it's not available but for myself I want speakers for music, this might turn some people off)

  • from Gatineau, Qc

Fantastic Mobile Speaker

I really like the Bose Speaker, it is very convenient and with a great sound. Anybody looking for a outdoor speaker for their smartphone, this is the product to get. This is a Great, Great Speaker!

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Great sound. Easy to connect too. Good battery.

Bought this for listening around the house and while working out. Was more than impressed with the sound quality and how loud it could actually go. Didnt notice any sound distortion at all. Battery life is great, the 8 hour is not a stretch at all, in fact I think its even longer. The only down side is the lack of ability to receive calls and its a little big. If you wanted to carry it around you'd need a bag or big purse. Overall excellent buy and would highly recommend. Easily worth the cost.

  • from Waterloo, ON


This speaker gets almost as loud as the soundlink mini and its half the price. The splash of colour also makes it look like an old Gameboy colour. Love the sound, love the brand. The lack of independent volume control isn't a big deal. I find it easier to change the volume since it is the same whether through your device or speaker. If you're looking for a quality, not to expensive speaker, this is it. Has micro USB charger and an aux in port.

  • from Kelowna, BC

Awesome Sound!!!

Sounds is great. No independent volume control though.
